At Blue Farm Anne Moller-Racke, a seasoned winegrower, focuses on Burgundian grand cru style Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from four different vineyards and four AVAs within Sonoma and the Anderson Valley. The common thread is the rigorous farming and care giving to the growing of the grapes. Winemaking is traditional, less being more. Our small lot, single vineyard wines are available through our mailing list or directly from our winery.
|Our mission is to farm unique sites in Sonoma County that yield extraordinary wines, pure and full expressions of place.
Blue Farm began in 2001 with the planting of seven acres of Pinot Noir on Anne Moller-Racke’s small farm in Carneros. She designed the vineyard to produce one complete wine, blended from four clones. Kenneth Juhasz, a critically acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay winemaker, has helped make the wine since 2003.
During this time Anne has also been president and winegrower of The Donum Estate and, working with Kenneth as consulting winemaker, has produced no fewer than 26 Pinot Noir’s across ten vintages rated between 91 and 96 by the Wine Spectator. Most recently she was featured as the “Princess of Pinot ” in the cover story of Sonoma Magazine’s annual wine edition
|Several years ago, Anne assisted Timothy Mott with planting and farming 1861, his small vineyard perched on a rocky hillside above the town of Sonoma. Tim and Anne subsequently became friends and then business partners, bringing Kenneth in to help launch their expansion of Blue Farm.
Blue Farm takes its name from the 1880 Queen Anne farmhouse at our Anne Katherina Vineyard. Located along El Camino Real, this nine-acre property lies three miles south of historic Sonoma plaza, birthplace of the California Republic and its wine industry.
